theme songs

Postby jack1974 » Sat Jan 07, 2017 11:55 am

I realized I never actually asked what people think about the theme songs for the games.
I got some feedback, but for example during last year I released 5 games, all of them with a theme song, but didn't get much feedback (which usually is not a positive thing).

So I'm wondering, do you like the theme songs? or not? or you don't care?

Doing a theme song is quite expensive/time consuming, I could make 3-4 normal tracks with the same money/time (or obviously also do more art/writing for the games).

I can't actually think of a notable or memorable theme song from any VN I've read other then To The Moon . It's very possible I enjoyed them in the moment but if it doesn't create a memorable moment it's probably not worth the expense.

Heh well maybe it was because that game was so good that the song remained stuck...Anyway, is good for me to listen to opinions, thanks :)

I don't much care for the theme songs in WW games. I'm not really a fan of ballads in the first place, and I find the ones in WW games pretty cheesy even for ballads.

Also probably makes more sense for dating sims only than RPG or other kind of games :)

As I've mentioned before, I loved the theme for SOTW.

Really, I have yet to hear a theme in a game I've played in WW that I didn't dig. Well, w/ the exception of CD--but that's only since I'm a red-blooded dude, and not really one for songs that sound like they're made directly for dating sims. :P Other than that, I've thoroughly enjoyed all of 'em that I've heard! :)

I feel like most of the theme songs in WW are out of place. Games that do this well have a main theme, but then elements and hints of this music are present in some of the other songs on the soundtrack (a leifmotif). The WW ones sound rather disjointed to me, a totally different genre playing a theme that's not touched on in the rest of the game outside of the credits and the main menu. It's almost like they're made by an entirely different music composer.

If the main theme fit in with the rest of the soundtrack better, maybe it'd be more interesting.

In some cases are indeed made by a different music composer. However in some cases I think what you say happened:
- Always Remember Me: it even has an instrumental version of the track in the game
- Roommates: all done by same artist, and the rock sounds of the title is present in almost all the tracks in the game

also I think when Undead Lily will be out, you'll be pleasantly surprised :)

Ah, I haven't played either of those. I'm more familiar with the RPG theme songs.

The only theme song that sticks in my head is the the one for Roommates. I know some of the others were good, but that is the only one I still hear in my head to this day.
